But for real, libraries are completely underrated if you like to read. If you’re like me and low on money, it’s a great resource to be able to read nearly any book you could dream of for free. The best part about libraries is the convenience of their websites (I hope all towns’ libraries are as easy to use as NYC!).
Rather than going all the way to the library, looking for the book, finding out it’s at a different branch or it’s checked out, and going all the way home empty-handed, you can search for the title online, put it on hold and have it delivered to the branch closest to you. They e-mail you when it’s ready and boom, you have some intellectual entertainment.
It’s quick and easy to get a card and the selection is usually pretty big. Just don’t forget to return them 😉
